Top ambassadors of Czech music, Ivo Kahánek and Jakub Hrůša, will perform the greatest Czech piano concertos with Bamberger Symphoniker14. January
The recording will be released on CD this autumn.
Pianist Ivo Kahánek, one of the most sought-after Czech pianists, and the rising star of global conducting, who has been the leader of a foremost German orchestra with a “Czech” sound, the Bamberger Symphoniker, are joining forces again on 18 and 19 January 2019. At their home scene the orchestra and Ivo Kahánek will play the Concerto for piano and orchestra no. 4, “Incantation” by Bohuslav Martinů. They will also conclude a grand recording project: Supraphon will capture their joint performance of exceptional Czech concertos – the Concerto for piano and orchestra in G minor by Antonín Dvořák and the Concerto for piano and orchestra no. 4, “Incantation” by Bohuslav Martinů. The recording will be released on CD this autumn.
Pianist Ivo Kahánek and conductor Jakub Hrůša have been long-time friends in life and art. “We do not just agree as people as well as artists, but I am again and again amazed by how creative and yet professionally perfect the orchestras under Jakub sound”, says Ivo Kahánek. “He makes no difference between a symphony and ‘just an accompaniment’ – on the contrary, he always goes all the way to the very limits of what is possible, which is extremely attractive and motivational for me. He is simply the kind of person you want to tell something in music you have never told anyone before him!”.
